Clayton Trail (Legend Park)

No. of Reviews: 22

these trails consist of a main trail with multiple loops branching off of it. They are(in order) Allen's Trail, Short Loop, Long Loop, Harvey's Pond, Little-Big Horn and Larry's loop( and soon to be Magnolias Run). the main trail starts off on the lower portion and snakes around in flat, heavily vegetated woods. half way in, the main trail takes a turn toward the upper trails and takes you into a hilly hardwood forest. trail features include big log stacks, rock gardens, creek-side riding, the "huck" and the "Ravine". once Magnolias Run is complete, trails length should be around 10 miles. See www.Trianglemtb.com for detailed map of the trails.

Summary:
For the area this place is a lot of fun. Trails are well kept and some technical difficalty. Terrain park ok for beginners who are getting use to that sort of riding. All and all trails run sort of fast with some rock gardens and rooted sections. Would recommend going to at least once to see if it suits your style of riding.

Summary:
Theese trails offer much for riders of all levels. The lower trails offer a great warm-up and some rock hopping. The upper trails have some of the hilliest trails in the area. If you are tired of the winding path through the flat trees then Ledgend is for you. Bone jarring downhills followed by lung burning grinds. Highly recomend it for a great ride. What it lacks for in length it make up for variety. Huge 30+ ft drops for the death-wish crowd.

Recommended Route:
I like to burn a loop around lower trails then head to upper trails with a fast tear around Larrys Loop. Don't let the "hard" signs keep you from going around. Great bridge crossings and climbs.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hog Run

Great place for both xc, and freeride i guess...

Some sweet, official (not gonna get made into a golf course) stuff for freeriders. Hucksville has about 5 drops, pretty much a cliff to drop off with drops of varying heights. I think theres one you can roll down, a 7 footer, an 18, a gap, a 30? and others i cant remember.
On allens trail by the skills area, theres a large setup of shore style skinnies.. I didnt hit em, looked pretty sweet. If you go up past hucksville on the main (wide) trail you can start at the top, ride some decent dh.. It goes down the main, enter the entrance to the lower loop. It flows through some berms, a small gapper, etc.

Also a good skills area for beginners. Drops from 1.5 to 4? feet. Skinnies and a few jumps (singles)


Lower trails are great for beginner xcers, upper trails have lottsss of up and downs. The downs were great, im not too big on climbs.


Great place to go for all skill levels

Summary:
Great trails--something for everyone. Very well designed and maintained.

Whoever built these trails basically took virtually unusable land and transformed it into some of the best trails in the Triangle. Should be a blueprint for taking whatever land you can and turning it into interesting and fun singletrack.

Summary:
Hadn't REALLY Mountain-Biked in years when I first rode this, so the "easy" trails seemed hard enough for me. Didn't dare the "Difficult." But a great trail, great design, something for all skill levels, even mine. Rock garden, log piles, jumps, switchbacks, it has everything, even a "death-pit," which you'd have to pay me a lot to try. All hails to the designer and maintainer!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hog Run, Harris Lake Park

Summary:
I love this trail! This may be the first trail that I have ridden that was built by trail builders for mountain bikes. This trail has excellent flow, and I enjoy the log stacks, bridges and jumps that pop up along the singletrack. The lower trails are a great warm up for the upper trails. The mix of steady uphills and winding singletrack downhills on the upper trails will always keep you working. I haven't got the guts to totally let go of my brakes on the ravine yet, and until I do I won't get up the other side but next time I will.
I'm headed down there next month, I can't wait to see the new stuff.
This trail get 5 flaming chilis, and even if I find a trail that I like better, Legend Park is still top notch. Kudos to the guys who built it!

Recommended Route:
Ride it all.
